Meet the friendly staff at Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital!

Caroline Kim

I'm a San Francisco native and always joke that if I ever leave this city again it will be under the rubble of an earthquake.  I attended Lowell High School and then went to the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia for pre-med, graduating cum laude with a Major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry.  Tired of the cold, I returned to California to attend UC Davis for Veterinary School.  There, I developed a real interest in soft tissue and orthopedic surgery.  I went back to the east coast to complete a surgical externship at the Animal Medical Center in New York and became TPLO and laparoscopy certified after eventually returning to San Francisco for good.  

I now live here in town with my husband, two kids, and two cats. When I'm not at work, I can be found in divey cafes reading my newspaper, at home typing a letter on my typewriter, or listening to the Wood Brothers on my turntable. I illustrate for my writer friend on the side, and occasionally play gigs on the fiddle.  I also try as much as possible to speak French and Spanish to people who won't cringe at my terrible accent.  If your pets are bi-lingual, get ready... I am known to try my conversational skills on my furry friends as well!
